One hundred years ago, led by Alderman Tom Kelly Chairman of the Housing Committee, Dublin Corporation set out to address the city’s reputation of having the worst housing in the British Isles. This talk looks at four estates built on Dublin’s south side against a backdrop of unrest, war and revolution and how the Corporation overcame difficulties of the times to provide modern, sanitary housing for citizens.
